practicing waking up…

Zen Student:
Is there anything I can do to make myself enlightened?

Zen Master:
As little as you can do to make the sun rise in the morning.

Zen Student:
Then of what use are the spiritual exercises you prescribe?

Zen Master:
To make sure you are not asleep when the sun begins to rise.

*note: unable to find where i originally read this quote, prior to a post i made in 2014 with same quote. if anyone knows and can share, i’d love to give credit 🙏🏻
